I bought magnetic drain plugs years ago on ebay for a few bucks, and they looked like what you proposed to build... a long earth magnet drilled in a drain plug.

I had them in my 5.0 and that engine has two plugs, when I did oil changes I had to make sure they were far enough apart so they wouldn't crash into each other. lol
